Claire Lee was born in 1976. She lives and works in Hong Kong. She is a poet, curator and visual artist working across the media of painting, mixed media and photography. A graphic designer by training, she also studied curatorship at theHong Kong Art School.
She is concerned about the artwork itself as much as its presentation and its relationship with the space and the audience. The entire spatial experience is her creation. Even the titles of her artworks are extensions from her poetry work.
Drawn to subjects dealing with psychological struggles and personal strength, Claire Lee offers a vision of the world full of contrasts. Imagery of flora and fauna, and at time found objects inhabit her mixed-media paintings.
Since 2008, Claire Lee has been publishing her poetry and giving readings at forums and collaborative music performances.
